History Tour on Sydney Road Brunswick

Following the success of our first history tours in April 2022 (which focused on key buildings from Brunswick Road to Glenlyon Road), we’ve teamed up with the Brunswick Community History Group again to arrange the next instalment! Which will take place from Glenlyon Road to Victoria Street. Book your tickets here

Lead by local historian Simon Pryor from the Brunswick Community History Group, tours will take a leisurely walk along Sydney Road Brunswick, with 14 locations of interest for a deep dive into the history.

  12. The Duke of Edinburgh Hotel
  13. Brunswick Mess Hall
  14. Former Coles & Woolworth’s Variety Stores

At the conclusion of the tour, attendees can enjoy a complimentary coffee – providing an opportunity to have a casual chat with Simon and take in the historical significance of it all.
Walking tours run for approximately 1.5 hours and take place on Saturday 2 July, Wednesday 6 July and Saturday 9 July – from 11am-12:30pm.
